I do the FabShopHop every other month so that my DH won't get mad at me for being on the computer so long each day. I remember someone's comment about how long it took to hear that she had won a prize & another lady was going to be charged for the shipping of her prize. I received notice that I had won a small $25 item from the April Hop. I won 4 yards of different white on white & beige on white fabric & I wasn't asked to pay for the shipping which made me very happy. I was so pleased because I didn't have anything like that in my stash. Now I'll be playing those FabShopHops more often because if nothing else, they have nice downloadable patterns for quilts. And I have found some fantastic on-line quilt shops that I would never have known about had I not entered the shop hop, or heard about them from the ladies on this board.
